Honest Aesthetics

Video displays the deformation or death of character by society because you opt in taking the road highly traveled. Stand up for who you are and learn not to follow the masses just because this is what we are trained to do. Heaven forbid you are different because society will ostracize you.

Gotta love her and her pattern of bold art and integrity. The left and ride side of the brain will be in constant rotation, New Amerykah 1 and 2

25 Random Things About Me

January 30, 2009

I figured I’m bored at work so let’s pass some time

1. I hate raw veggies with a passion. In my eyes you have to be a special person to know how to make a salad taste great. However, I love cooked veggies international style or in any international cuisine. My favorite veggies are sun dried tomatoes (fruit?) and spinach, I always try to make meals in which I have both in some manner…ok enough about veggies

2. I may no longer do art anymore, but love to cook and cook for others. I would love to teach others to cook…or volunteer in art therapy for kids

3. The majority of my male friends have had feelings for me of more than a friend in some manner, I however don’t feel the same way the majority of the time, and even those who thought I may, may get a unexpected answer if they asked

4. I’m a naturally dreamy girl, I love to daydream all the time, think of ways to be a better person, become enlightened, read philosophy and mentally changeling book, read about cultural identities and civil liberties. I like to enjoy life my way and sometimes create and like to believe my own world…and not the stuff I see everyday on the streets. I actually become really excited when I daydream, and prepare for it like its Christmas.

5. I believe I have heightened senses to the nth degree, so I tend to scare myself by sensing what is not there (you can imagine the rest), and my woman’s intuition is 95% correct

6. I tend to draw all types of people to me, but those who doubt themselves, have low confidence, are not sure of themselves, or compare themselves to others tend to not last long in my life, and by divine nature they become dismissed.

7. I have a huge heart for kids, animals, and those who have become the effects of other people’s reckless causes

8. At my church I aid in counseling people who have lost loved ones twice a month and send out sympathy cards

9. I was baptized in April 2007 in Atlanta, GA. However, I believe I was saved in my college dorm room at Temple University in the summer of 2005 while doing my homework in the afternoon…no joke!

14. I have 17 screws and 2 metal plates in my right ankle from a car accident I was in, in May 2007

16. My middle name is Nicolé not Nicole

22. I have a Master’s in Polymer Chemistry and a minor in Analytical Chemistry…but I was supposed to get my PhD in them…I just hated GA Tech (grad school) too much…it started to mess with my health and well being…however I wouldn’t change a thing because it prepared me for the worst

23. My mom and grandma have lupus…and I wonder if it will affect my health one day

24. I would love to go back to school to become a sex therapist and woman activist, promoting safe sex awareness, self-esteem, and sexual confidence and positive and constructive inquisitiveness

“I’ve tried to live my life as an example to others…I tried to be loving and thoughtful…I’ve tried to be caring and kind…I’ve tried to be a good person,though many times I’ve stumbled…I’ve tried to be a witness; to play my part;to live humbly and without regret.” “Our lives are our witness, and our witness is our legacy. It is what lives on in the world after we have departed.”

“Surving is easy; living can be difficult. We are so conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us off guard.”

“You never know the power you possess to heal a human heart. Regardless where life may lead, you’ve got a role to play. Sometimes circumstances won’t allow you to reach back, but they should never stop you from reaching over”

…I spent most of the night talking to the ex’s friends because they seem more comfortable than the guys, plus I’m tuned into the pussy discovery channel. I’m not gay but I think women are the species that can really understand the beauty of life and its obstacles, especially black women, even compared to twin fish men, gay men, or good guys, and I want to experience that ora of real life rawness and pure passion, that feeling of let’s just be, no ego, all flaws, just vulnerable and honesty…something that seems foreign now

 

Support System

November 2, 2008

I was telling one of my great amigos my plans for my future in regards to my careers. To be a wedding planner, a cosmetic chemist, and a make-up artist. I started to feel excited about life again, after I decided to leave GA Tech with my Master’s in Polymer Chemistry rather than my PhD. I felt like my voice was finally going to be heard and what I wanted to do was finally going to happen like a fairytale. I kept talking 100mpm and my amigo said to me “Hold on, let’s do one thing at a time…first and foremost you have bills to pay so you need a job, and it may not be what you want at first.” My air balloon popped and I was mad at one of my biggest supporters. My feelings of my dreams were temporarily crushed and I was pissed of at him. He finally said to me after seeing my face “Always remember I have your being, that’s more than your back.” I cracked a smile…still upset. A week later he hooked me up with a weeding planner in Atlanta who has high clientele and told me to take my time and learn 🙂

The Human Back

The Human Back

What to do when everything that is/was falsely positive comes to the light in too many aspects at the same time (in a week) in your life: re-evaluate, prioritize, take a plan of action, stick to your guns, and beg GOD for endurance to fight through and recognize bullshit. Even with second guessing my intelligence based on one test to get my Master’s at GA Tech, still scrambling to pursue a career in the middle of chemistry, the recession, art, and my destiny to push those to be aware of their doings and set a positive feminine influence, to those who think I’m blind and don’t know what they do (if I don’t see it my chicas will),  to my chica who is stingy with her hair rollers (when I do her hair for free !!!  :/), I maintain and at the end of the day love those who really love me back…and be thankful for what is sincerely positive

Not me hehe 🙂 Just relate to her emotion
